Springsteen - New Single - New Album 2014

There's a new Bruce Springsteen single next week. "High Hopes" is a cover version, but word on the street is that it'll be followed by a new album early next year.

He released that song years ago as part of that Blood brothers reunion. I hope they change the producer this time round as I don't like the sound that he is giving to Springsteen on his last 2 albums.

Wasn't it Ron Aniello last time and Brendan O'Brien on "Working On A Dream"?

Didn't like "Working on a Dream" too much but "Wrecking Ball" is up with his best.

Either way Rob I didn't connect with the albums the way I have with most of his stuff. The sound in many ways is too polished I think and is different from the Springsteen I fell in love with. I'll get it and go and see the tour but it's not a must for me anymore. I've seen every tour since 1988 and seen some of the best shows but it's a great 'show' for me now rather than an emotional connection.

Maybe I've changed but I still get it when I whack on the Hammersmith show from 1975. Will give Wrecking Ball a listen as I do love that song but the rest of the album slipped me by

Magic and Working on a Dream seemed too polished for me. I enjoyed Wrecking Ball. Would love another acoustic album.

I know what you mean. I think "Magic" is polished in a good way. I though the Irish/American feel of "Shackled & Drawn", "Death To My Hometown" and "American Land" would be right up your street.

He's unlikely to repeat his 1973-84 period, but I honestly believe that what he's put out since 2002 stands against ANY artist in that period; not many people 40 years into their career can have such a wealth of interesting material, but you're right that it's not going to rank alongside "Darkness" or "Born To Run".

New album confirmed for January 13th.

A mixture or covers, originals and re-recordings.

I was a bit the same. Saw him in 1981 (Apollo Manchester- same night as FA cup final replay against spurs) and seen him numerous times since. Became a bit disillusioned with the newer stuff and saw one of his worst shows at Crystal Palace. Wrecking Ball gave me renewed interest and seeing live at Wembley this year was probably his best show I've seen. I'd give the album another chance as the three songs WDW mentions were standouts for me.

Leeds Arena this year was simply amazing - being down in the pit right at the front for that one (and getting a handful of his thigh and back as he crowdsurfed over me) may have ruined any future shows for me though...

As if a new album wasn't enough, there's The River boxset, plus remasters of the first two albums in the pipeline.

I'm curious to know what can be done with The River - The Tracks boxset contained a glut of fine tracks from the sessions, including the wonderful Roulette so surely there can't be too much in the way of worthwhile unreleased material?

There's live footage form that era that could come out as a DVD/BluRay. The album sounds dated, I was never a fan of the recording of that album it some how felt flat in parts Great, Great songs but would appreciate a listen to see what they can do with them. He also recorded a concert of The River straight through so I can see a box set easily been put together. I love what they did for the Born to Run album in terms of sound and I hope the same guy gets hold of The River.

The most exciting news for me is that they are 'doing some remastering work' on the first 2 albums. The wild, the innocent.. is my favourite Springsteen album and I would love to hear that cleaned up (Giddy Times)

I'm with you on that: I don't think that the recording of The Wild .... is that bad, but the first album certainly needs a clean-up.

Not so much bad but neither was Born to Run but I love how they 'cleaned' it up subtly. If they could do this for Wild.. I reckon I'd wear the CD out.

I love that last quote from Springsteen about the on rushing train focusing the mind, both sad and joyous at the same time

Apparently, the new album was "accidentally" put up for sale yesterday on Amazon - it's not available any more but a lot of people managed to buy it when it was so it's out there.
